Ndu Sub-Division: Fleeing civil servants ordered to resume work

The Sub-Divisional Officer of Ndu Sub-Division in Donga Mantung Division in the North West Region of Cameroon, has called on all civil servants who have deserted their duty posts in the sub-division to resume work immediately.

In a release signed on the 13th of September 2020, Adamu Shuaibu Ibrahim says 30th September 2020 is the deadline for all to resume work.

Following the massacre of people in Ngarbuh in Ntumbaw village on the 14th of February 2020 in the sub-division, civil servants and other inhabitants of the sub-division have taken refuge in other towns and villages in Cameroon.

Following calls from the D.O for civil servants to return, a secondary school teacher posted in government secondary school Ndu says the call is not backed by effort from the government to maintain security. Speaking to Mimi Mefo Info anonymously, the teacher says:

” Going to Ndu at this time can be compared to a cow getting to a slaughter house with no hope of returning alive.Let government resolve the crisis then i shall go back to teach. For now I can’t risk my life”.

Note that school resumes in Cameroon on the 5th of October after close to seven months break as a result of COVID 19.
